Plus , are there childminders out there for my 2 year old or does everyone use day care - any suggestions for this??

    Mount Eliza Secondary College

    We are heading to Melbourne in December to the Mornington/Mount Eliza area and have looked at a couple of school websites. Our daughter is 15 in January so unsure on the Year she will start in (currently in Year 10 in UK). We are going to do a tour of Mount Eliza Secondary College. Does anyone have any children at this school or have any information they can share? Thanks

    Mount Martha???

    Looking for some advice on the possibility of relocating to Mount Martha. We looked at the area 3.5 years ago when we first moved to Melbourne, at that time it was out of reach, peak of the property prices etc. plus we didn’t know where we would be working and the CBD was just a little too far for us if that’s where we ended up working. As it turns out if we sold up where we are now we would have made a decent profit, our salaries have increased and the properties in the Mount Martha area seem to be offering good vfm. There is also the addition of the peninsular link which would make both our travel times to work much the same as they are now, we work in Mulgrave and Burwood East (just off the east link). We are only in our newly built dream home about 18 months it in Lyndhurst, nice area facilities are still getting built and we are close to most of the things that we need, with the peninsular link opening we will only be about 30 minutes from the likes of Mount Martha. It only takes about 40 minutes to go into the city at the weekend and 30 minutes the other direction we are out to the likes of emerald plus we are less than 1km to the train station. Trying to weigh up if the lifestyle change is worth it? I grew up by the sea and loved it and every time we are down that way I wish we could live there. My wife likes it too but also loves where we are now. It not an easy decision to make. Any comments for and against would be appreciated.

    Mount Gambier

    Anyone living in Mount Gambier? :err:
  11. Hello all, I haven't posted here for ages and have had to re-register. After almost a year in Adelaide I've been offered my dream job as a Fisheries Officer in Mount Gambier. I know nothing about the area and start my new job in 3 weeks! We have a 5 year old girl and 9 year old boy so does anyone have opinions on the which schools to put them in? What suburbs are good, which should we avoid? We are taking a drive down there next week but any info would be great. I'm not getting any joy from my usual pomsinadelaide, er probably coz it's in Adelaide! Cheers! Damien

    Mount Annan High School

    Hi Does anyone have any knowledge of Mount Annan High School or Mount Annan Christian College. Are there many english children in these schools? Is Mount Annan High School any good or is it one best avoided. I've been on the myschool.edu.au website but information is fairly general. thanks

  16. We have been in Oz now for nearly 3 months, and love it so much we have bought a house in Mount Eliza, and are due to move in at the end of Jan. However, we just assumed that all the schools would have a before school club. None of the ones in Mount Eliza do. Since we are two working parents, we need before school care from 7:45am to 9am (when school starts) for our 5 year old son, who is due to start prep in Feb. We know nobody in the area (we are moving to Mount Eliza from Rowville where we are currently renting). We have applied for Home Based Carers (childminders) but they are not hopeful. The school has said we can put an advert in thier newsletter for other families who may be able to help out, but this will not be out unitl next March. We have even written to the Regional Educational Director to try and get our son into another school which provides before school care. Is there anybody who is able to help us with before school care for our son, or can anyone recommend anyone who can help, or know of any home based carers who currently have vacancies and can do school drop-offs? :arghh:

    Mount Eliza Secondary School

    Hi, We are moving to Mount Eliza in Feb and have enrolled my daughter (17) in Mount Eliza Secondary School in year 11. We loved Mount Eliza when we did our reckie trip a few months ago, and also had a tour round the school etc. The school looked fine but it's always difficult to tell from a short visit. Is there anyone here who sends their children to Mount Eliza school and can give us a frank and honest evaluation of the school. Both my daughters are fairly academic and are keen to go to Uni - one focusing on psychology, the other on Maths. The reason I'm a little concerned is that both girls spent a day in a different school during our reckie. However, most of the time the pupils did not listen to the teacher, and were on their ipods or laptops - and this school is higher up the ranking than Mount Eliza. We did get a good vibe at Mount Eliza school, but the girls never got chance to spend time in the classroom. Many thanks, Simon

    Balcombe Grammer, Mount Martha

    Hi, I understand that several people on this forum send there children to Balcombe Grammar school in Mount Martha. We are considering sending our 2 daughters to this school - starting in year 11. Both are academic and I'm looking for a school where their academic qualities will be supported. Would anyone be willing to provide some honest feedback on the school. I also understand that the school is based on christian values. Since we are not a particular religious family, I'm wondering how much religion is taught in the school. Many thanks, Simon

  24. Hope you can help, This is a strange request but........... stranger things have been asked on here so i thought I might as well give it a go. We are visiting on a reccie the first week of June and both of my kids would like to visit a cub scout group while they are their. Their cub leader put the idea in their heads now I am left to try and sort it out. I have been in touch with the Queensland scout head office and they have informed me that the following two groups will be the closest to where we are staying. Victoria Point Scout Group – Mount Cotton Scout Group They gave me some contact names and phone numbers but I have had no joy in getting hold of anyone. Please help me (you know what kids are like once they get the bit between their teeth) Thanks :hug:
